Fifty Shades Of Grey: Erotic Novel Sparks Increase In Extramarital Bondage

Posted: Updated:

Recent research has discovered a growing trend of Fifty Shades Of Grey fans who are turning to bondage to get their kicks – just like in the book.

The erotic novel everyone has been talking about (unless you’ve been living under a rock the last month) has smashed records and is now making its way into our bedrooms.

But although Fifty Shades Of Grey features monogamous (yet kinky) sex between two lovers, the emerging trend isn’t exactly the same.

This is because the thrill seekers getting busy with blindfolds, whips and handcuffs are married... to someone who isn’t acting out their ‘submissive’ fantasy.

Extramarital affairs dating site, Ashley Madison.com (whose moto is: ‘Life is Short. Have an Affair’) has discovered a 50% boost in members confessing to indulging in bondage role play with their lovers (not husbands or wives) after reading the book.

According to AshleyMadison.com, 62% of all new members interested in trying bondage, admitted to signing up because they fear that their spouse would be shocked if they suggested bondage.

Therefore, it is no surprise that the sudden popularity in sadomasochism is being played out behind discreet bedrooms doors, says founder Noel Biderman.

“Our members tend to be more adventurous with their affair partners – many have been suffering in a sexual rut with a long term spouse and the book has prompted them to discard their inhibitions. As such it is no wonder that bondage is taking off in a big way,” Biderman told HuffPost Lifestyle.
